Re: Anchoring in lake weeds
A Danforth is probably about the worst since it has so much surface area for the weight. Beyond the anchor, a really important consideration is the technique. You want to not be moving at all so the anchor and chain can work down through the weed without picking up too much of the vegetation. If you are moving in any direction the anchor gets clogged with week before it even has a change to find the bottom.
Finished the circumnavigation in early February in Grenada. Have to work on a book project for the next several months so the boat will be waiting for next year.
